it's crazy to think that the ice was 8 inches thick on pine creek! Last weekend the temps went from single digits to almost 60 and back to teens within a 36 hour window. Rained all day than went to freezing rain and snow.Well the ice broke loose, than jammed and caused flooding in many areas. I felt like a got to experience all 4 seasons in a single day.
In Indonesia, public buses are a perculiar sight given the high height of their doors. People don't have to jump to get on board, bus shelters are raised higher than pavements as well. Why? As a temperate country that experiences high rainfalls, the extra height is needed to combat floods, making sure that even when cars are partially submerged, buses can still ferry people to safety, without water flooding in everytime doors are open.
